Seuss Secures Back-To-Back Southern Tour Titles

Brunnhoelzl Takes Down Charlotte Win

CONCORD, N.C. (Oct. 8, 2015) – In the closest championship race in NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour history, Andy Seuss stood alone at the end of the night at Charlotte Motor Speedway as the 2015 titlist.

With a sixth-place finish in Thursday's season finale Southern Slam 150, Seuss edged race winner George Brunnhoelzl III by three points in the season standings to secure his second-consecutive Whelen Southern Modified Tour crown.

Seuss, a native of Hampstead, New Hampshire, knew he needed to finish sixth or better going into the race to earn a second title as he led brothers Burt and Jason Myers by 10 tallies, and Brunnhoelzl by 13. With Brunnhoelzl's max-points effort in his victory Thursday, it left little margin for error for Seuss. More Results

Coby Keeps Title Repeat Hopes Alive With Another Win

Pulls Even With Preece After Fall Final Triumph At Stafford

STAFFORD, Conn. (Oct. 4, 2015) – Three races after it appeared Doug Coby's efforts to repeat as NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour champion were in jeopardy, he's back in the driver's seat.

The Milford, Connecticut, driver rolled to his second straight win Sunday in the NAPA Fall Final 150 at Connecticut's Stafford Motor Speedway and will head into the season finale as the championship points leader.

Ryan Preece, the 2013 champion who was the runner-up to Coby in 2012 and 2014, rebounded from an accident and pit road penalty to finish second at Stafford. Woody Pitkat, who entered the penultimate race weekend with the points lead, finished 12th after being involved in a late-race wreck.

The result is Coby will head to the season finale even in points with Preece. They are both four points (565) ahead of Pitkat (561) going into the Sunoco World Series 150 at Connecticut's Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park on Sunday, Oct. 18.

Coby has six wins to Preece's four and Pitkat's one. more results

Jerry Scott Claims Mod Lite win
Scott Hall Wins Sportsman and Blake Shupe Claims Street Stock Win

(Hickory, NC): Andy Jankowiak took advantage of Cale Gale's misfortune to claim the win on Labor Day at Hickory Motor Speedway. The win capped a weekend of wins and great finishes for the New York driver who won a big ROC event on Friday night.

Fastest qualifier, Gale, looked to have the car to beat until contact with a lapped car with 13 laps to go caused him to slide up the track and lose momentum for just long enough for Andy “J” to slip past. Gale recovered and was able to chase Jankowiak but ran out of laps. Gale finished second with series point leader Burt Myers in third. John Smith's late race pit stop strategy almost paid off as he make the most of the late race tire change to rally to a fourth place finish. Brandon Ward also was involved in a lap 100 crash that took out Danny Watts, Chase Hunt and Jason Tutterow to drive back to fifth spot at the finish.. Results / Event Photos

Brunnhoelzl Finishes What He Started

Champion Capture Pole and Wins race

HAMPTON, Va. -- George Brunnhoelzl III has led more laps at Langley Speedway than anybody on the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour. But that hasn't always translated into victories.

Saturday night, Brunnhoelzl closed the deal.

The four-time tour champion from Long Island won the Coors Light Pole Award and cruised to the win in the Bayport Credit Union 150 presented by Budweiser. Brunnhoelzl's No. 28 Composite Tech/Dunleavy's Truck & Trailer/Oval Speed Chevrolet finished .387 seconds ahead of Kyle Ebersole, who edged Andy Seuss for the runnner-up spot. Results

Bonsignore Earns Third Win At Home

To Sweep At Riverhead Raceway

RIVERHEAD, N.Y. – Justin Bonsignore joined elite company Saturday night when he drove to a NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour season sweep of events at Riverhead Raceway.

Bonsignore grabbed the lead from Doug Coby on Lap 115 and held on through six caution restarts to take down a third career victory at his home track, and second in two tries in 2015.

A 12th and final caution came out on Lap 199 just after Bonsignore had taken the white flag in his No. 51 M3 Technology Chevrolet, and he came around to a yellow-checkered. It was the eighth career victory overall for the Holtsville, New York native.

In the process he became just the fifth driver in 31 years of Whelen Modified Tour racing to sweep a season at the venerable Long Island bullring.

Coby and his No. 2 Dunleavy's Repair/A&J Romano Construction Chevrolet finished second, while rookie Chase Dowling, Donny Lia and Eric Goodale rounded out the top-five. Results

Brown Outlasts Rivals To Win 10th BGS Title

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Tim Brown continues to make history at one of NASCAR's most iconic tracks.

Brown clinched his 10th NASCAR track championship at historic Bowman Gray Stadium in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, last Saturday night to add to his record-setting collection of title trophies at his home track. Brown edged rival Jason Myers by 24 points in the final standings (808-784) after the 150-lap season finale.

“After all these years and championships I still can't believe it sometimes,” Brown said. “My grandfather (Eb Clifton) raced there years ago and I would go as a kid to watch him and dreamed of just being able to get out on the track and race, much less win one race or even a championship.”

While Brown only had four wins to Myers' seven, the Cana, Virginia, driver was quick to point out the strong season Myers had.

“We didn't have the best car all year but we stuck to our game plan and kept working to find speed all season long,” Brown said. “Jason was fast all year and had a great season. If it wasn't for some bad luck he had on a double-points night, he might be the one celebrating right now instead of us.”

The third-generation driver, who works for Michael Waltrip Racing full-time in addition to racing all season long at Bowman Gray, said it was a complete team and family effort that got him to this point. He's now ready to make the trip to Charlotte in December to be recognized at the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Awards Ceremonies.

“It's get hard and tougher every year to find the time and energy to work and race full-time,” Brown said. “There's no way I could have done it this year without the support of my wife (Megan), my brother Ben, crew chief Mark Ruhmann and all the guys on the crew.”

With just under a month remaining in the season, who joins Brown in Charlotte is still far from decided. more results

Patience Pays Off For Preece

Wins Delayed, Shortened Bristol Whelen Modified Race

BRISTOL TN. ( August 19th. 2015) - Ryan Preece positioned himself in the right place at the right time, and took home the Bush's Beans 150 trophy Wednesday in the annual combination race for the NASCAR Whelen Modified and Whelen Southern Modified Tours.

On a night that saw rain pause, and ultimately shorten the Bush's Beans 150, Preece grabbed the lead on Lap 75 just before the midway break and held the position during a subsequent caution on Lap 96. As rain and severe thunderstorms loomed during track clean-up, NASCAR officials threw the yellow-checkered flag on Lap 103, sending Preece's No. 6 TS Haulers/East West Marine Chevrolet to Victory Lane.

Seuss was the highest-finishing Whelen Southern Modified Tour entry, and received credit for a victory for that tour. more results

Preece Scores Another Stafford Victory

Assumes Whelen Modified Points Lead

STAFFORD, Conn. (August 7th, 2015) -- Heading into the home stretch of the 2015 NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour season, a trio of drivers are leading the championship charge.

Friday night's Call Before You Dig 150 at Stafford Motor Speedway did little to separate them, although 2013 champion Ryan Preece moved to the front of the line, courtesy of his third win of the season.

Preece's No. 6 TS Haulers/East West Marine Chevrolet was out front for the final 69 laps en route to his third win of the season and 14th of his career. Five of Preece's wins have come on Stafford's half-mile, including a victory in June's TSI Harley-Davidson 125

Challengers Doug Coby and Woody Pitkat followed close behind in second and third.

With nine races down and six remaining, Preece now leads Pitkat, who began the race with the points lead, by four tallies and defending champion Coby by 13. Todd Szegedy, who entered the night just two behind Coby, finished 16th and is now 30 points out of first. More Results
